You can upload file to Dropbox and then share the link. That is easy. Want to upload photo, videos, find apps in App store for specific purpose (like Flicker, Picasa...) It's all free.
If you want to safari enable the uploading, jailbreak it.iPad 2, iOS 5.1, New iPad

The way this problem is going to be solved is by CareerBuilder developing an app that is capable of interacting with iOS as it is. Whether that means sucking in a resume via Dropbox or some other means is for the techies to figure out. Until someone chimes in saying that they succeeded in posting a resume to Dropbox from an unjailbroken iPad, users would be wise to NOT purchase any of the mentioned apps with the CareerBuilder site in mind.
Underemployed developers should talk to CareerBuilder about how they could upgrade their site or App.

sorry, got my message boards mixed up. My interest was in CareerBuilder, and the askers. But it does illustrate the issue.

I will presume that you are involved in the development of iUploader, since it was released just a day prior to your post. If so, I commend you for the efforts. I have downloaded the App and it looks promising. It states that it is ready to go for Monster.com and CraigsList, but most other sites will require a little bit of tinkering by the sites themselves before it will work. I came to this page for having the issue with CareerBuilders.com, and while it does not appear to be working quite yet, if that happens I will return and sing the Apps praises for moving us closer to where we need to be! Despite some people's assertions to the contrary in this forum, Steve Jobs for one believed that mobile devices would in fact evolve into being fully functional devices for content creation as well as consumption, and this may well take us one step closer.

[QUOTE=Michael Morgan1]The iPad and iOS lack a file handling system. As such, there's no way to hit a Browse button on some external site, drill down I to your iPad's file structure, and start a file transfer. This are all OS functions that just don't exist on mobile devices.[/QUOTE]
That's not quite true. My old Windows Mobile device had a file system. Files could easily be uploaded through the browser. From what I understand it's also possible in the Android operating system. iOS lacks a file system because of Apple's decision to "sandbox" apps for security reasons.

Recession Apps, YOU DID IT!
This is the solution to the question that originally brought me to this forum. The key piece of info that it took me a while to understand is that iUploader has a builtin browser and you have to go to CareerBuilder.com within that self-contained browser for the functionality to be invoked when "depressing" Browse for a file. I had been trying to do it on Safari or other alternative browsers.
Thanks for filling the void. I'll write you a nice review on the App store when I'm inthe mood.

In the upcoming iOS6, you can upload photos and videos from your photo albums directly to websites in Safari. You just have to wait till it's out in the next few months.

That may be so but iUploader™ allows uploading of ANY file, including photos and videos from your photo album, PDFs, Word documents, Excel spreadsheets, Powerpoint presentations etc.

This app works as advertised. Solved my issue. Just wish I did not have to email the file to myself. I end up having to open the file in another app. Do my edits. Send it to myself in an email. Open it in iuploader click done...then I use the iuploader browser to navigate to the page and walah....upload the file.
Thanks for the solution.

Hi, just want to bring to your attention the app does not work with hays.co.uk

If you want to contact the developers, you should probably do so here.
Recession Apps was involved in this discussion in order to promote his app as a solution for the OP and is likely not following this discussion any longer since it has been almost one year since he last posted. Try the email address and maybe they can help you.
